OK out taking more pics for website so today it's let's hump the FILBE bag on the DG-16 frameset.
First off, the frameset was awesome, as usual.
I was loaded up to about 40 lbs of the usual shit, including water. Same 10K hump as Monday with the DG-3. My time was just a bit slower, due to increased weight, and the different balance.
Couple of pics just to show you how it fits on the frame. Up top, sleeve fits right on, stab straps in center position.
Working our way down, you can see the side "yib-yab" tab mated to frame, and also lower cinch strap passed through frame slot for added stability. Also note lower frame attachments (for 1606), which are cinched around lower harness straps, and then both tails taped together.
Here's the lower "yib-yab" tab inserted into frame. And again the lower frame straps with tails taped together.
Not shown are lower sleep compartment straps, which were also run through slots in bottom of frame before going on to buckles on back of bag.
So it's got a sleeve on top, one yib-yab per side, one optional cinch strap per side, and one yib-yab per side bottom, and 2 optional sleep straps on bottom. So not quite as tied in as the Crossfire, but pretty close. No mods are necessary to fit bag onto frame. Although I have a few in mind, but point being, the stock bag fits right onto the DG-16 frame.
